GUASFCU: An Integral Part of The Georgetown Community

FINANCIAL LITERACY SERIES


GUASFCU is proud to support the George R. Houston Memorial Fund. The George R. Houston Memorial Fund was founded by GUASFCU in conjunction with the Office of Financial Services, distinguished professors, and other members of the Georgetown community in 2008, as a tribute to Professor Houston, who provided the initial financial contribution to GUASFCU. This fund sponsors Common $ense, our financial literacy series, which has grown dramatically since its inception. Common $ense is a monthly lecture series featuring Georgetown professors, alumni, and financial literacy experts. The lectures cover a range of personal finance topics—such as budgeting, investing, and taxes— that are relevant to college students. The goal of the series is to increase financial literacy on campus and to empower students to make informed decisions about their finances. Learn more about upcoming lectures at www.gucommonsense.com.
